Comprehensive land claims policy: R32-81/1987E-PDF

"The Government of Canada adopted a revised comprehensive land claims policy in December 1986. ... the revised policy contains provisions for new approaches to the cession and surrender of title, self-government, wildlife and environmental management, the inclusion of offshore areas in negotiations, resource revenue-sharing and negotiating procedures. Where no changes have been made in the policy and procedures, the provisions of the previous policy will remain in effect. This revised policy will guide the federal government's approach in all negotiations. ... This booklet sets out the elements of the revised pollicy. It is not a statement of law. The procedures to be followed in submitting and negotiating the settlement of land claims are also described. There are six main sections: objectives; scope of negotiations; self-government; involvement of provincial and territorial governments; protection of aboriginal and non-aboriginal interests; and procedures"--Introd., p. 6-7.
